About US Ski Cross
Who We Are?
The USA Ski Cross is a 501 c(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting U.S. athletes in international Ski Cross competitions such as the FIS* World Cup, FIS World Championships, Olympics, ESPN X Games, and other elite Ski Cross competitions. One of the main goals of USA Ski Cross is to facilitate the success of U.S. Ski Cross Athletes in the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Krasnodar Krai, Russia.
USA Ski Cross was founded a few months after the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. USA Ski Cross was created in part due to the elimination of several elite programs under the U.S. Ski Team, with ski cross being included in those eliminated.
Recognizing that ski cross has a bright future, a number of key ski cross figures joined together to form USA Ski Cross. Some of the USA Ski Cross board members include 4-time Olympian Daron Rahlves, former head U.S. Ski Team Ski Cross Coach Tyler Shepherd, ESPN’s Chris Schuster, former Senior Director of Competition and Athletics at Atomic Eduardo Guzman, V.P. of CBS TV & Properties Sales Mike Jaquet, longtime World Cup & Olympic (Gold medal) technician Curtis Bacca, to name a few.
The immediate goal of USA Ski Cross is to secure funding for this elite group of athletes so that they may continue to represent the United States in International Ski Cross competition
The Mission of USA Ski Cross is the support and development of U. S. athletes for national and international competition in Ski Cross events, and the promotion of national and international Ski Cross competition. As part of fulfilling this mission, USA Ski Cross aims to help field the largest group of U.S. Ski Cross athletes possible in the 2014 Olympics Games in Sochi, Krasnodar Krai, Russia, and seeks to help U.S. Ski Cross athletes win medals in those Olympic Games.
